How to check if a car is prerental or not.

I know by law, the car dealer has to state it when they are selling to you, but how can I find prove of that?


I saw lots of car from Quebec, as the seller said the car was one owner and returned after the leasing period. I am worried...

in car proof it will show if the car was rental. it says at the very end about rental history.


Also i keep on reading the thread title as 'how to check if a car is prenatal' lol.

How do you tell a used car salesman is lying?

Retail auto resellers only state what's ever disclosed to them by the person or persons or venue from how they acquired the trade.

The 'lie' usually begins after personal or business ownership trades it in, not. or rarely from the reseller - if the car is tagged a rental then it is.

Rental companies, drivers education companies, taxi services, small business delivery services, even joe blow pizza delivery guy who all have racked up high mileage will and have gone as far as to choose limited disclosure when unloading their used up fleets.


Here's a prime example:
A couple days ago someone here posted a video of their trade(Camry) being appraised by a dealer. Remeber that? 320k on 4 year old car.
First thing that really came to my mind was taxi driver. Maybe for Uber who knows. Didn't want to say it so didn't mention it. But 80,000k a year driving. hmmm

In Ontario, you can purchase a Used Vehicle Information Report that tells you who the previous owners of the vehicle are, if it was registered in this province prior. Is there something like that in Quebec?
